Rated 5 out of 5 by bikegrrlwi Great for cold, wet weather!
I wanted something to wear while bike commuting and doing solo recreational rides in cold, wet weather - and so far, these have been fantastic!
I wore them on a ride to work and back the other day: 45 degrees Fahrenheit and rain. Although the pants (and my bag) were covered in water and mud, my work pants stayed nice and dry. The pants dried quickly, allowing me to brush the dirt off for easy storage. The fabric did well at keeping out the wind, so I imagine that these will work as an outer layer when it actually gets cold. As an added bonus, the snaps at the bottom of the pants made them a bit skinnier, preventing them from getting caught in the bike chain.
The sizing on these was also perfect. I'm a smaller woman (5'5", slim, 30" inseam), and ordered a youth 14. The waistband is stretchy enough to fit over pants and skirts, and the inseam is just right. Compared to many of the woman-specific products, they were a great value as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AG Not what we expected
The pants are definitely waterproof - but it's not what we were expected. It's rubber-like and does not breathe at all. My son did not like how it felt at all. Bought two pairs thinking he could use it for practice in the rain, but returned both.
